|With one of the world's largest barrier
reefs, the Abaco's offers some of The
Bahamas most varied and least crowded
(also known as best) snorkeling and
diving sites. You can get an eyeful at reefs
starting in depths of just 1.5m (5 ft.) and
ranging to 18m (59 ft.) and more.
Like sheets on a clothesline, sprawling
schools of fish billow by coral caverns,
huge tube and barrel sponges, and fields
of elk and stag-horn coral. Sea turtles and
large groupers are common sights.
In fact, the waters are so clear that you can
often see farther than 30m (98 ft.). "
